24 inch Long Asparagus Bean

P1030058P1030067I harvested a few asparagus beans. I picked some that was curling on the ground and I couldn’t make them stay up off the ground.

We were so surprised that at this early stage in their growth that some of them are 24 inches long. Wow! And according to what I’ve read, they could grow to be 30 to 36 inches long, they’re also called yard long beans.

I figure these long beans deserve a post showing their length compared to a familiar bush green bean.

I haven’t cooked them yet, but I plan too soon. I’ll let you know how they cook up and how they taste.

Trying new or different veggies is an enjoyable part of the gardening experience. We’ve tried some different veggies this year, so stay tuned.

Have you ever grew yard long beans?
Do you have a favorite recipe for long or normal green beans?

Happy Gardening!

      I cooked some up and we liked them better than regular green beans. It’s fun growing them and watching them mature. I hope you all enjoy them as much as we have. 🙂
